This wedding vase is a high quality piece of authentic horse hair pottery with intricate hand etching. This unique wedding vase uses real horse hair during the firing process to decorate the rustic vase. The artist throws the pieces of horse hair onto the pottery at just the right time to cause it to stick and melt into the piece. This causes a permanent application of the horse hair to the pot and yields the famous look that everyone loves. Each piece is unique, no two are alike.
The wedding vase is a very special part of American Indian legend. The parents of a couple to be married will make or purchase a wedding vase for the couple. The vase will be used during the ceremony and then kept for the rest of their lives as a symbol of the love and unity.
This wedding vase is also hand tooled and painted to create a unique decorative piece perfect for any southwest style, western décor or cabin. It would also make a great special gift. Actual wedding vase is shown, measures 5.5" tall, 3-3/4" wide.
